“YOUR BEST vegetables are: CAULIFLOWER, cabbages (not the green cabbages)… Some other vegetables we eat are as follows: BRUSSELS SPROUTS, asparagus, eggplant, okra, squash and rhubarb.”
AS-SALAAMU ‘ALAIKUM BEAUTIFUL ASIATIC QUEENS!
Our Beloved Messenger (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah Forever Be Upon Him) taught us in HOW TO EAT TO LIVE that “Simple Foods Are The Best.” So it is best to not prepare all kinds of fancy foods nor try all of the devil’s new foods he puts on the market to tempt your appetite and have you eating pork byproducts he surreptitiously adds to all his foods.
Milk, Bread and Navy Beans are the Best Foods for us to eat. Of course, we can supplement these foods with Vegetables and Fruits. But we should be careful not to eat every kind of vegetable. We should not eat those vegetables that we were reared on as slaves, such as collard greens, turnip sprouts, beet top salads, kale, etc. (according to the above book). These vegetables are horse and cattle foods and are not fit for human consumption. However, according to the above book, Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts are two of the vegetables that are okay to eat.
Fresh vegetables are very easy and very healthy for us to make. To prepare cauliflower, simply tear off all of the green leaves and then cut the stem. You can break off the florets with your hand and then wash them. To prepare the Brussels sprouts just wash them and remove any yellowed leaves. You can also trim the stems.
Chop some onions and add a few whole cloves of garlic. Place them in some Corningware or any baking dish with a lid. Do not use aluminum foil. Season with salt, any seasonings you like and butter and bake at 350° F for about 30 minutes or until you smell them. I usually turn the oven off when I smell them and let them remain in the oven to continue cooking. They get really soft and good this way. I feel like I could eat some of these vegetables right now. They are very appealing to the appetite.
